Burlington, Ont. – Brad van Schubert has been named IG Wealth Management Ontario University Athletics (OUA) Male Athlete of the Week, powered by Planters, for the period ending October 7, 2018.
Male Athlete of the Week – Brad van Schubert (Barrie, Ont.) – 1st Year – RMC Paladins
It’s easy to remember your first OUA start, but when it comes to first-year goaltender Brad van Schubert, his debut will be especially memorable.
Settling in for his first ever start between the pipes for the RMC Paladins, van Schubert made 36 saves, including all 21 shots he faced in a third period flurry, to help preserve a 2-1 win for RMC over Concordia in the regular season opener. Not only was the performance critical to the team’s ultimate victory, but the team that van Schubert shut the door on just so happens to be the reigning OUA bronze medalists and top-10 ranked squad nationally.
van Schubert’s tremendous effort gives the Paladins their first win over the Stingers since 2012.
